    What Sparrow?

    4/17/17 in Southeast Michigan
  2. Recently I saw a sparrow like bird with prominent yellow stripe on face along with a bunch of white crowned sparrows in maricopa county. Unfortunately I didn't get a good photo but have a very bad photo from back. I can see the yellow stripe. Is it consistent with golden crowned sparrow? Thanq very much.

    Haven't mastered the sparrow ID'ing yet. This kinda looks like a golden crowned sparrow but without the gold crown. Tricky little birds...

    These little guys are still hard for me to differentiate. Is it a song sparrow?

    What Sparrow

    I saw this picture of what I assume to be some sort of young sparrow posted on a website and identified as a song sparrow. This seemed wrong to me, and I was considering chipping sparrow or a relative, although its coloration reminded me a little of a savannah... Could anyone help me out with id? I would also like to know the approximate age, if that is possible... Thanks!

    Song Sparrow?

    Seen in Orange County, CA. This sparrow looked much different than other Song Sparrows in the same area with a much more sluggish behavior, but the ID still seems to fall on Song Sparrow to me. Can they be variable even in the same area at the same time? Thanks

    Sparrow ID

    First inclination is Savannah Sparrow, but that is not a strong opinion. There were a couple of these sparrows mixed with a large number of Juncos. They were feeding on the ground. What say you? Image taken 11/6/2016 in Southern New Jersey, USA Thanks.

    What kind of sparrow?

    I took these photos of this sparrow this morning (10/31) on Plum Island in Massachusetts. I couldn't ID the bird and speculated about a first-winter white-crowned or a clay-colored, but I'm not certain. Thanks for the help!

  17. IMG_9842 by louisekopena, on Flickr IMG_9844 by louisekopena, on Flickr IMG_9845 by louisekopena, on Flickr Took this photo two years ago but have never been able to decide what it is. Sorry about the photos, these were the best shots I could get. I saw it in May in the reeds of Kimble Beach, on the Delaware Bay the New Jersey side when looking for red knots . I love sparrows but I'm not very good at telling them apart yet, please help.
  18. Hi, New to the forum. I am going through some old photos, and noticed a bird I'm having trouble identifying. It's from Aug 2010, in Warren Co, PA. The bill is pinkish and quite large, which is giving me some troubles, matching it with a white throat. None of the sparrows look quite right. Any help would be much appreciated. Best, Ashley

    Song Sparrow ?

    I do not see a chest patch, and is the reason I am questioning this species of sparrow. Song sparrow?
  23. I was at Chatfield State Park in Colorado this morning, and saw these two sparrows in the grass near the beach. They were perhaps loosely associated, or maybe just happened to be close together. Thanks in advance!
  24. Hi all, I encountered this sparrow on the rocky hillside leading down into Bumpass Hell in Lassen Volcanic National Park. I originally identified it as a Pacific variant of the Rufous-crowned sparrow, but recent conversations have made me wonder if it was a Chipping Sparrow instead. Does anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance!
  25. Yesterday we saw a small flock of these in grassland near Sonoita AZ. They were like fairly large very streaky sparrows. They all looked similar but were hard to see clearly. I think I know what they are but would like an independent opinion. Thanks in advance!
